ABSTRACT

This study aimed to examine the relationship of the knowledge of end-of-life(EOL) care, life-sustaining treatment(LST), and advance directive(AD) with the educational needs regarding AD writing among nurses in convergence era. For this cross-sectional study, participants were 169 nurses at a general hospital in South Korea. Data were collected from July 19 to 26 in 2018 using structured questionnaires. Knowledge on EOL care scored 8.56 out of 11 points, knowledge on LST scored 5.11 out of 6 points, and knowledge on AD scored 8.02 out of 9 points. Educational needs regarding AD writing scored 4.31 out of 5 points. There were statistically correlations between knowledge on LST and educational needs regarding AD writing (r=.182, p =.018), and between knowledge on AD and educational needs regarding advance AD writing (r=.234, p =.002). The findings can be used to develop the educational program regarding AD.
